The VHRR was established in
1976 to promote Historic Motor Racing in Victoria, and where
possible assist with its growth throughout Australia.
Race meetings and
speed events are held though-out the year, giving
owners of historic racing cars, and those interested in such
vehicles, the opportunity to exercise their cars and feel
the exhilaration of running such fine machinery, or just to
be close by.
The club has been so
successful over the years that meetings held at the Grand
Prix Circuit at Phillip Island in February/March, and at
Sandown Park in November, now attract some of the most
awe-inspiring cars from Australia, New Zealand, and the rest
of the world. We regularly see cars from the UK, USA, Germany, Hong Kong
Alfa Romeo, BRM, Maserati, Cooper, Jaguar, HMW, Maybach, MG,
Lago Talbot, plus many Australian specials.
Many overseas owners and
drivers find the warmth of the welcome at these meetings,
the charisma of racing at these fabulous circuits, and the
Australian hospitality, brings them back to this country
year after year.
Added to the racing is the
possibility to holiday in world class resorts around
Australia, either before or after the events.
Another incentive for visiting the race at Phillip Island
early in the year, is that the Australian Grand Prix (the
first GP race of the season) is held a week or so later.
What an opportunity! Come and see world class racing,
